True Wealth: Living the Dream

Value principles guide true wealth

      People dream of having things like cars, jobs, homes, money, and the list goes on.  The concept of owning in our society is a driving force which causes many to pursue after things. They pursue them even at the cost of what they hold dear such as family or ethics.  It is at this point I want to bring a concept into the picture now.  “We do not own things instead we are managers of things”. (Ron Bennett)

     If as a society we seek to own or control everything in our lives it will leave us hurting and frustrated.  There have been many people who have found themselves at the brink of destruction. They were trying to control what they cannot.  Control is far too often a mere fable.  A husband who wants to control his wife’s actions is in trouble.  It may work somewhat but in the end the marriage is often lost. This is because she was made to be led by serving not controlling.

      People want to manage or control market conditions in some way shape or form.  There have been many movies and things written of men who have tried to control or tame the beast of our markets.  Nope, we cannot control what we cannot control.  People lose money every day betting on things they have no control over like the lottery.  Some feel they control their job situation. The truth is they are an expense of a company on the budget sheet. So, they have very limited control over anything at their jobs.

       The spirit of the Entrepreneur says no more controlling me I take a leap of faith. There are things on a job we can control and as a business owner.  The truth is most things in life we have little control over. We have ways to help propel us in a direction we want to go in.

     Goals are great ways to focus that direction and habits are keys to move us in that direction.  Neither of these will guarantee us the result we want. We are not in control of the complete outcome that is the reason I devoted a chapter on faith and purpose.

     We control our habits one of the greatest keys in our lives to master and learn.  Meaning we will work to achieve mastery.  I know of no one who has ever achieved mastery of controlling their habits.  The people who get good at it are considered masters.  They constantly make themselves do activity that will lead them in the direction they are hoping to go in.

      The key here is most of us see a vision of what we want to come to pass.  Things generally never quite work out like we seen them originally in our minds eye.  We must find a detailed understanding of where we want to go.  Then we can plan the action habits to move us in that direction.  The planner cannot plan without the outcome in sight.

     True wealth is not about what we accumulate with assets, physical items, and so on.  True wealth can be found in what makes us want to get up in the morning and tackle our day.  Wealth can be found in people who love us unconditionally.  Wealth can be found in family, friends, and enough of stuff to get us by.  I like to think of wealth as having what we need to accomplish our life’s mission.

       I am not saying we should not accumulate money, homes, and things.  Wealth is not these things these are what I call riches.  Riches have their place in our lives.  Riches can be replaced if lost or stolen.  Wealth like I am speaking of cannot be stolen from us.  We must be wealthy and rich in all things.
